I get similar problems for other perl programs installed via
freebsd ports, when I try to remove them with:
#cd /usr/ports/package-category/package-name; make deinstall.
The problem is, that ports db assumes the the modules are
in fact they were installed in
As rmkml said, a possible solution is just to symbolic link
i386-freebsd to i386-dragonfly.
Is there a need for a shell script in a base system, which
automatically symbolic links freebsd dir to dragonfly with
every installworld? Or is there a better solution?
